The Tampa Bay Times reported the sleazy relationship between Florida Governor Rick Scott and the nursing home industry. The biggest nursing home company in Florida is one of the top donors to Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s political action committee, new campaign records show.
Consulate Health Care, a Tampa-based company, sent Scott’s Let’s Get to Work Committee a $100,000 check two weeks ago, becoming among an elite set of 11 donors who have given Scott at least at least $100,000 this year. Consulate runs more than 200 centers in 21 states, including 80 in Florida, according to its website.
All told, Scott has now raised $3.8 million in his Let’s Get to Work Committee in 2015, even though he is term limited and cannot seek re-election. Hmmm….I wonder why they are giving so much money to a lame duck politician?
